Canterbury is one of the most popular destinations in Kent, mostly for its magnificent cathedral. The tasty oysters and quaint shops of Whitstable lure tourists to the northern coastline of Kent, where you’ll also find family-friendly resorts such as Herne Bay and Margate.
Rochester, which sits beside the River Medway in the north of Kent, is another beloved tourist hotspot. This pretty town was the home of Charles Dickens, and book lovers will be in page-sniffing heaven in this enclave of literary connections and bulging bookshops.
Over on the south-east coast, the White Cliffs of Dover and the wartime tunnels of Dover Castle provide more diverse ways to spend leisure time in Kent.
It takes around 90 minutes to cross the county of Kent from east to west and around the same time to travel from north to south, so nowhere is too far away, wherever you make your base. Pre-book your car rental to find the best deals in Kent.

On the western edge of Kent, close to Dartford and the M25 orbital motorway, is Bluewater, one of the biggest and best shopping centres in Europe. If you are looking for a retail fix, this is the place to be. Hundreds of stores, plus eateries and entertainment options, will easily gobble up an entire day.
It’s easy to reach central London from Kent. With excellent rail links to the major attractions of the capital, many visitors opt to hop aboard a train rather than tackle London’s busy streets in a hire car. Don’t miss the chance to see the parks, palaces and museums of this bustling metropolis, as well as crowd pleasers such as Tower Bridge, the London Eye and Covent Garden.
Another city to see is Brighton. It’s a two-hour drive from central Kent to this seaside beauty on the south coast, but few would disagree that it’s worth the journey. This icon of the British seaside also has a legendary nightlife.
